Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an evidence-based intervention proven to support depression. I obtained my Level II CBT Accreditation from the APT and will work with you to help you fully understand your symptoms, how your thoughts, feelings and behaviours contribute to depression. I will work with you to develop a plan to help address and minimize the depression. This type of support will benefit you as you will be able to identify ways that you can actively make changes and see the depression alleviate (changing thought patterns, emotional regulation, behavioural activation, etc).

Depression is a symptom that can be debilitating. The suffering is great and we often do not have the energy to handle life the way we feel we need too.

Dealing with the black cloud of depression can be a debilitating challenge for many people at different points in life. Understanding how depression impacts our physiology, identifying the triggers that bring about the cycle of depression and learning effective coping strategies to regain control over the darkness that seems to be in charge makes living with depression manageable again.

Our thinking and our behaviors can have a significant impact on our mood. Learning to understand the core beliefs that we carry and how they cause us to engage in distorted thinking can make a difference to our mood and joy in life. Changing our actions, can impact how we feel. Motivation and energy are low - making change difficult! Work with me to determine the best ways to get you back to a point of experiencing joy.

Depression affects an estimated 1 in 15 adults every year, and 15% of people will experience depression at some point in their lives. It isn’t just an episode of sadness; you can’t simply snap out of it. If you’ve never experienced it, it’s hard to understand what living with this complex medical illness is like. Living with depression often means believing that things will never change; you are stuck in overwhelming darkness that will never go away.

Depression is the common cold of psychology. Like anxiety and stress, depression is quite commonly reported by consumers of psychotherapy. I am experienced, comfortable, and patient with treating depression. I am neither strongly opposed nor strongly supportive of pharmacotherapeutics. I engage an approach that is personal-growth-centered and as independent of the medical model as is possible.

Many people believe that in order to be "strong," they need to bury their feelings and keep them hidden from others. Over time, this can backfire, as feelings can build and take over, leaving a person feeling down and depressed, or overwhelmed. I work with clients not only to work through feelings of anger, resentment, hurt, and sadness that have built up, but to develop new habits of self-care, assertiveness, boundaries, healthy expression of feelings, communication, and stress management so that this does not occur again in the future. By doing this, they can become a more well-rounded person, who feels free to express feelings as they arise, and no longer carries them with them.

Depression can feel like overwhelming sadness, or maybe like you are in a "funk" that you can not get out of. People often start to isolate themselves, and focus on negative thoughts. I offer a warm, safe place to share your feelings, examine your relationships and perceptions that may be contributing to your depression. I introduce concrete suggestions that will help you get your back on track. People frequently feel a sense of relief after sharing their burdens. In discussing experiences people are often able to view themselves differently and gain insight into how they can more effectively deal with situations and relationships.

When one is depressed the range of thoughts and feelings encompass a wide spectrum. Sadness and despair might be pervasive. One can feel as if they have fallen into a deep dark pit where everything is covered in negativity and hopelessness. In this state, one can feel inadequate, discouraged, unable or unwilling to make decisions. In addition, guilt, shame, profound low self-esteem and loss of interest in relationships, sex, career and even life itself are commonly found. A variety of evidence-based tools, specific to the needs of the individual, applied skillfully at the right time, can dramatically lift one out of that deep, dark pit and help avoid relapse.

Depression is a state that is usually warranted as a result of the situation that we come across. If we allow ourselves to experience and explore our depressive states, our natural tendency is to move out of this state. My approach to working with depression is not to make clients feel better immediately, but it is to sit in the depressed place with them so we can explore why they are there. Once its explored, experienced, and understood, only then can we move ourselves to health.

As someone who has a history of depression personally and intergenerationally, I am well aware of the great challenges and opportunities for growth that this experience can bring. For those struggling with depression, healing can feel elusive, as if nothing will ever work. It often requires a wider lens, an eye for patterns and a deeply supportive and holistic orientation to shift this dynamic. My approach comes from my years of experience moving through and finally out of my own depression and integrating the ancestral patterns that laid the foundation for it in my life. I now come to you with a wide-reaching tool kit to support you in your journey.

Depression can have multiple and complex causes, but most often it can be attributed to how we think. When we examine our thoughts, we can find we are struggling with automatic negative thoughts that leave us feeling depressed. Learning how to identify these thoughts and actively speak differently to ourselves armed with statements that are more true, we can see the depression levels begin to decrease.

Many people think depression is about not doing enough or being uncommitted to their goals, however, people who struggle with depression are facing the problem of being over-committed to their goals and failing. When I work with clients dealing with depression the goal is to manage goals and expectations and work on creating small changes that build momentum to larger changes.

Have you been feeling down for awhile? Have you lost interest in activities, have low energy, have difficulties making decisions? Do you find it hard to concentrate, to sleep, to get up in the morning? These are all signs of depression, and there are many strategies to deal with it. You do not need to suffer alone! Having someone to walk with you through this can be very helpful. We all have negative thoughts at times, but we can get dragged down into depression when negative thoughts are relentless and constant. It is not easy to battle these alone which is why reaching out for help is so important.

Depending is often the result of negative thoughts and beliefs about yourself and your life. One gets trapped in a downward spiral that drains the life force out of you. Past experiences and actions may continue to haunt you. The beliefs about oneself can be difficult to fight. My approach is not to cheer lead you to fight them and be strong but to go deeper and challenge the very truth of what you are believing about yourself. Accepting ones weakness and vulnerability without being controlled by them can be hard but it is ultimately the way up to a more integrated and fulfilling life.

Sometimes depression feels so dark it is hard to get out of bed. Other times it is more like a "heavy cloud" that burdens you with constant negative thoughts and feelings. Sometimes people are haunted by a barrage of critical thoughts like "what's wrong with you", " you always screw up", " if only you were like other people". Counselling helps you change the way you think and feel about yourself so you can approach life with a more hopeful and positive outlook.
